Opinion| I recall very specifically the mainstream media trying to convince Americans that former FBI Director James Comey wasn’t working toward furthering the Democratic agenda.
It seems too me that Comey has been very politically motivated, and it’s pretty clear that he isn’t a fan of Republicans.
Just take a look at what happened on Monday.
Fox News reports that the disgraced former FBI Director went on live television this past Monday in order to accuse President Donald Trump of “lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI, and attacking the rule of law in this country.”
It’s strange that Comey should talk, being someone who stands accused of abusing his authority as FBI Director, “usurping the power of the attorney general in the infamous Hillary Clinton email scandal.”
Fox News’s Gregg Jarrett reminds Americans of the DOJ’s Inspector General’s 500-page report, in which he cited Comey for his obvious political bias, unprofessionalism, and insubordination.
He also reminds us of the DOJ’s “scathing critique of Comey that was endorsed by six former Attorneys General and Deputy Attorneys General from both political parties.”
It is a damning indictment of how Comey committed multiple acts of misconduct and “refused to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken.”
To this day, Comey refuses to accept responsibility for his misdeeds. Instead, he shifts blame to others or attempts to cover it up. When confronted with uncomfortable evidence he pretends, as he did more than 200 times in his December 7, 2018 congressional testimony, that “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember.” His amnesia is, quite literally, unbelievable.
He can’t recall who drafted the document that launched the Trump-Russia investigation. He claimed he never knew as FBI Director that Clinton, Fusion GPS, and the Democratic National Committee were all responsible for the anti-Trump “dossier.” As for Bruce Ohr’s role at the Department of Justice in peddling the document, Comey replied, “I don’t know anything about that.” Comey testified he hardly knew anything about the involvement of Christopher Steele, the former British spy who composed the phony “dossier.” He said he didn’t know when the FBI fired Steele for lying. Right.
Take a look at what Comey had to say on Monday:
Comey is looking pretty desperate right about now.
